SOFT TISSUE SURGERY
There are a variety of soft tissue surgeries that can be performed at Beach Avenue Animal Hospital. Soft tissue surgeries are any surgeries that do not include the bone.
One of the most common soft tissue surgeries is the removal of masses, or lumps. Once these are removed they can then be biopsied and can be found to be either benign or not. It is important for early removal and accurate diagnosing of the lump to improve the outcome if it turns out the lump is cancerous.
A few other different types of surgery are related to:
- frequent ear infections: surgical intervention can reduce the occurrence by improving air flow into the ear canal.
- eye problems: tearing in your pets eyes can been an infection or the cornea may have been damaged and surgery can aid the healing process by allowing less scarring and improving your pets vision.
